  • • 2 socks (1 is the majority of the bear, the other you'll only need a small amount for the bear's nose)
    • scissors
    • thread
    • marker (or something to draw your shapes for cutting)
    • 3 small black buttons, 1 small white button, and any other little embellishments you want to dress up your little fri

  • 1. Flip your sock inside out and draw the head and ears at the toe end. The heel becomes his little bum and you draw out the legs on the other side of that. The rest of the sock cuff becomes his arms.

  • 7. Cut out a piece from the other sock to create his little muzzle. Cut out an oval shape – I'd say close to the size of his face and then pin it in place.

  • 8.Hand sew the edge of the muzzle to the face of your bear. I stitched all across the top, down one side and halfway along the bottom before starting to insert stuffing. Squeeze a bunch into the pocket you created and then continue on stitching to close the rest of it up.

  • 9. Now for the fun part! Attach your 2 little eyes, and nose. I used 2 buttons to create his nose – a black button, with a slightly smaller white button on top. This is my favourite part in creature creating! They really start to come alive when you add the eyes :)
